Further review of surveillance video of the Dec. 10 robbery of Compass Bank in West U. shows the two suspects driving away in a silver or gray 4-door vehicle. Police earlier released descriptions of the two subjects.

The suspects are both described as black men dressed for cold weather and wearing layered clothing. The taller man, around 6’ to 6’1” tall, was wearing a dark blue “hoodie” jacket. He was unshaven with dark sunglasses and dark gloves, possibly between 20 and 20-years-old. The short subject was about 5’6” to 5’7” tall in his early twenties and was clean shaven. He wore a dark baseball cap, dark sunglasses, a multi-colored jacket, dark brown gloves and blue jean pants.

No customers were inside the bank when the suspects entered. One of the robbers passed a teller a note demanding money. The note instructed the employee “not to do anything stupid,” and said the men had police scanners.

One of the suspects served as a lookout, while the other approached the teller. The man who passed the note told the teller the lookout was armed, but neither suspect ever produced a weapon.

Once the suspect had the money, the two fled, and no witnesses were able to provide a description of a vehicle. The bank employees called police, but the suspects have not been located. According to West U. police, the bank does not have an armed guard, and at no point was a panic button utilized.

Anyone with information should contact the police department at 713-668-0330.
